This past Sunday we hosted a gender reveal for Baby Karl at my parent’s house. We decided to pop a giant balloon filled with either pink or blue confetti. It was a good idea in theory BUT the balloon was huge and barely fit into our Jeep! We nervously drove the balloon home 20 minutes away as it bounced around the backseat and prayed it didn’t pop before the party.
The gender reveal was SUCH a fun memory to share with our family and friends. I can’t wait to show Baby Karl this video someday too.
Matt and I had NO feelings whatsoever on the sex of the baby until our last ultrasound. While the tech was careful to hide the anatomy from us, I thought the baby looked just like my husband so my guess was BOY!
Check out our gender reveal video below to see if we were right!!

As you guys know in 2017, I am on the “own it” tour! This year I’m ALL about discussing the beauty maintenance EVERYONE is doing and no one is talking about (especially celebrities). When I was invited to try UltraShape Power by Dr. Horn’s office here in Chicago my first thought was: “Where was this before […]
If we’re friends on Instagram, you already know this summer we ended our 2 week trip to Europe in Lake Como, Italy! I’m still working on my full travel vlog and hope to be able to share that with you guys next week. In the meantime, I thought it’d be fun to do a little […]

Between a move, end of summer festivities and some professional changes, I’ve been feeling uninspired and downright exhausted. Instead of posting just to post, I decided to step away and […]
